"In 1832 Robertson published the first issue of 'Whistle Binkie' [edited by J. D. Carick] ... This he followed up with ... four similar series [edited by Carrick, A. Rodger and D. Robertson] and in 1846 with a separate volume of 'Songs for the nursery' ... The whole were reissued in one volume in 1848, in two volumes in 1853, and again, with considerable additions, in 1878 and 1890."--Dict. nat. biog
